    Thoughts from Tuesday Night


    Dear Loma and CT Parents:


    We are going “old school” perhaps more than once this week.  Thanks to our team who navigated the parking lot in the pouring rain, our bus drivers who navigated treacherous roads, our facilities team who fired up our very old generator, and our staff who found a way to get here.  Living and working on Loma Prieta is not for the faint of heart.


    Please know that are schools are safe places to be and that we will do everything in our power (no pun intended) to keep school open, but when the time comes when we must close or can’t open, we will depend on you to have a plan to get your kids home or to a trusted friend in a timely manner.  Please work on making those contingency plans now.


    Got Questions?

    Please join Board President Deana Arnold and me for coffee and conversation on Tuesday, February 14th, at 8:30 a.m. in the art room.  Come hear about progress on the reconstruction, building and field master plan update, and many other topics related to next year and beyond.  Bring your questions, comments and concerns, and join us from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.  See you here! 


    We would love to know you are coming so we don’t run out of coffee cake.  Click here to RSVP so we can plan accordingly: https://www.loma.k12.ca.us//cms/module/selectsurvey/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=120


    Back By Popular Demand – Common Core Math Night!

    The shift in curriculum to the national standards in math is often challenging for parents working with kids at home.  We are once again inviting you to join us for a math evening with some of our amazing teachers – Mrs. Nefian, Mrs. Lyon, Mrs. Dufort, and Ms. Drazen. Please join us in the Loma Forum from 6:30-7:30 pm Thursday, February 16th.  This evening will be targeted to grades four through eight, but all are welcome.
